My first ever Gypsy tumble charm bracelet
What got you interested in crafting?
I always as far back as I can remember loved playing with beads. I just watched a few Youtube Vids on crafting then I got the bug for real. I started playing with wire. My first ever serious project was a wire wrapped ring.
What has been your favorite project to make and why?
I have to say I enjoyed making the crystal bead wire wrapped spiral pendant. It has a few elements in it. Why? I Found the end result very beautiful and the picture of it does not do it justice.
What’s the secret behind your etsy name? How did you come up with it?
TrembleRose. Well Imagine how beautiful a rose is when it trembles in that breeze that blows. It’s a name I have used often. My actual shop is Tremblerose, Shackles & Chains. Shackles and chains = Bangles and of course chains… Well that’s the idea anyhow.
What is the most challenging thing you have made?
Has to be my Gypsy Tumble charm bracelets. They are sooo time-consuming and can take me a whole day to make. Fimo clay is also challenging, you never know what your end result is going to be. I have these listed in my shop at the moment.
If you could open up a shop in your town what would you call it and what would it be like?
Well I live in a town that is very Rural. My shop name would be Tremble Rose’s Shackles & Chains. I would have it decorated in neutral Browns and creams with lots of spot lighting for items on display. I would also consider supplying beads and findings also.
What are some of your goals you hope to achieve within the next year?
Well my dream would be to change my job as a care worker to a Jewelry Crafter so I can make a living off of my crafting. Somehow I can’t see that happening so soon anyway, but one can dream.
What inspires you to be crafty?
Other people’s taste. I will be watching TV and that presenter will be wearing a necklace or that ring or some earrings and I will say to myself I could make that! Then I will attempt to do my own adaptation of it. I don’t copy other people’s work… I just get inspired by them.
What is your best quality when it comes to your crafts?
I do all my crafts to the best of my ability. I am not trained, I am mostly self-taught taking tips and tutorials off of the internet. I used to do ebay before I came to Etsy and I never had any bad feedback resulting from the items I sold. Here is a quote from one of my customers:
“Dear tremblerose, Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I received your pendant and am so pleased. The picture is wonderful but the actual pendant is regal. You had to have spent a lot of time and patience to do this kind of work. I have taken classes and watched videos to learn. My work is not so intricate and I have a long way to go. You are truly a unique, gifted person and I feel your pendant was worth a lot more than I won it for. If you weren’t quite pleased with your work I can’t even imagine what your other work looks like that you are pleased with. I would love to see some of it. Thank you so much again for sharing a part of you with me. I do appreciate it. Sincerely, Margie “
This was a message that was sent to me about a pendant I made just to practice some techniques. I didn’t like it. I was going to place it in the trash but I thought no, I will try to sell it. I placed it on for a starting bid of a penny and the lady won it for a penny. I don’t think I will make that again. It is totally unique. Here is a picture of the pendant:
If you could have one thing to help your store what would it be?
Advertising. That is one thing I don’t have any spare cash to do as yet. I look around and advertisements cost so much. In time I may see it as cost affective. Oh and I plan on giving my banner an overhaul. My husband is a graphics designer and I will let him loose with an idea for a banner.
